Cells. A tough topic with needing lots of visuals to teach the message across. For this topic, we like to use our trusty microscope to do the “talking”. As the saying goes, “A picture paints a thousand words”. With this, we let the specimen slides do the “teaching”. Touching on important notes on the topic and getting them to jot in their Scrapbook, we moved to the hands on. Teaching them the basics of the parts of a microscope, we got them to observe and sketch what they had seen through the lens. Time was not on our side. We would have loved to show them more slides but we cut that short and promised to have another round with them again!
